Review: Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Through the Ever Night
Under the Never Sky #2

Author: Veronica Rossi

Publication Date: January 8, 2012

Publisher: HarperCollins

Genre: Fantasy/Dystopian



It's been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don't take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe's precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both. 

Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder: Can their love survive through the ever night?

My Thoughts: Okay, I almost like this novel better than the first one - which is a hard feat because I loved Under the Never Sky!  It was sweet, surprising, overwhelming and had just the right amount of action for me.  I sped through this novel and didn't want to put it down for a moment.

At the beginning of the book, Perry and Aria are finally reunited after months apart after the previous book.  Aria has become a much more self-sufficient woman, clearly able to take care of herself for the most part now - a far cry from when she first left her home pod of Reverie and was a defenceless and sheltered Dweller.

Perry is trying to cope with the responsibility of being Blood Lord of the Tides.  He never wanted or expected to be their leader, but he is doing his best with what he has been given - which isn't a lot since the Aether storms and wandering tribes threaten their homes and their livelihood.

Everyone is still in search of the Still Blue, hoping beyond all hope that it does exist somewhere and they can make it there before their whole world succumbs to the scorching fire of the Aether.

The last book was a mission for Aria to find her mother and become self-reliant.  This book is about struggle.  Perry and Aria struggle to find a way to be together without everything and everyone trying to stop them.  The tribes are all struggling for food and maintaining their land.  Perry is struggling to be a leader and Aria is struggling to try and save everyone.

All in all, I loved this book.  It has some really sweet parts with Aria and Perry which I really, really loved.  Then, there are the parts that made me gasp and my heart wrench.  Through the Ever Night really drew me into the world and left me reeling when I was forced back into reality.  I love this whole series so far and can't wait until the next one.  If you haven't checked it out yet, pick it up!
